Art & Social Change

Associate Artistic Director Carla Mann along with artists, activists, and thinkers from Portland and beyond facilitated a participation-oriented community forum exploring ideas, practices, and possibilities within the shifting terrain of art and social change. Using a small-group format, eclectic teams–including performing and visual artists, scholars of multiple disciplines, activists working within a range of sectors, LGBT Requiem Mass Think Tank participants, TBA Festival audiences, and members of the public–gathered to tackle burning issues, discuss specific projects, and devise arts-based scenarios to address local problems.
